Tom Nguyen

Tom Nguyen pushed all in with {a-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} for 570,000 and Martin Borras called from the big blind, holding {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}, putting Nguyen at risk.

Tom Nguyen: {a-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Martin Borras: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}

The flop came down {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{8-Spades} and Nguyen took a commanding lead. A {10-Diamonds} hit the felt as a turn card, leaving Borras with just a nine to take down the pot.

An unthinkable {9-Spades} rolled over on the river, smashing Borras with the nine he needed to take down the pot, eliminating Nguyen from the tournament in seventh place.
